The only probiotic that has done real trials is VSL#3. I was in a trial in 2003, crohn's. The results were more promising for people with something called pouch itis and as well UC. It def doesnt hurt to try some though or any probiotic really. Keep in mind eating a activia (yogurt) a day most likely isnt going to keep your disease away. a VSL#3 package has 450 billion bacteria and the dosasge as determined in trials is 2-4 packages a day. Each package is like etaing 45 activia's. Plus you have 8 strains of different bacterias. It might seem like a lot, but in contrast to the total amount of bacteria through out your intestines it isnt all that much.
